MnSure Enrollment Deadline!




A message from Governor Mark Dayton
Dear Fellow Minnesotan,
Last year, a study by the University of Minnesota showed that over 95% of Minnesotans are now covered by health insurance and that the rate of uninsured in our state has dropped by 40 percent. This is great news, but it’s not good enough. ALL Minnesotans need health insurance, so I’m asking you for your help.
Sunday, February 15, is the deadline to apply for private health insurance for 2015. Federal law requires that you mustenroll in health insurance coverage by February 15, or you will not have the chance to purchase insurance coverage for the rest of this year. This requirement applies to most Minnesotans, unless you experience a qualifying life event, like a change to your household size or your income.
MNsure, our state-based health insurance marketplace, is an easy way to shop and compare health insurance plans from some of the state’s largest private health insurance companies. MNsure is also the only place you can go to see if you qualify for new federal tax credits or reduced premiums. (Most people do!) Free, in-person enrollment assistance is also available, if you would rather receive direct help. You can find help in your area on MNsure’s assister directory.
If you have already enrolled in health insurance for this year, thank you! But here’s where I need your help. We all know someone who is currently uninsured —a sibling, a high school buddy, even a co-worker. Please spread the word, make sure they know about the upcoming February 15 enrollment deadline and realize the benefits available to them through MNsure.
If you’re not insured, time is running out for you to get quality, affordable coverage. Visit MNsure.org today to find out what options are available to you. You can also text ENROLL to 30644 for reminders and information about enrollment events. Or, call the MNsure Contact Center at 1-855-366-7873 for help.
Don’t put your health at risk. The time to act is now. Let’s please work together to get all Minnesotans the health coverage they need and deserve. 
My best regards,
Mark Dayton
